Headed into 'true test' at Sedro Woolley, Mount Si's mat masters on a roll
Dec 07 2012, 4:38 PM
Tim Corrie wasn't expecting his Interlake opponent to take a shot right at the whistle. He reacted, fast all the same.
The 182-pounder, Jonathan Palagashvili, went for Corrie's legs. Tim went for the headlock, and made his pin in a minute-55. It was his third in a season that's included two decisions and four occasions when he was unanswered on the mat.
"I want to keep my undefeated streak," the senior says.
Something's clicking for the Mount Si wrestling team right now.
Fatal Fall City shooting ends 'end of the world' tirade
Dec 11 2012, 4:16 PM
A King County sheriff's deputy shot an out-of-control man in Fall City early Monday morning. The man, a homeless resident of the community, was taken to Harborview. He is alive, but his condition is unknown.
According to sheriff's spokesperson Cindi West, the man began an hours-long rant around 2:30 a.m. Monday in the Fall City Mobile Park in the 4300 block of Preston-Fall City Road, and became so aggressive by about 6:30 that "multiple" neighbors called 911.
"We understand from a witness that about 2:30, he was outside yelling 'it's the end of the world!'" West said.

Interchange growth on the back burner: County comp plan changes omit proposed I-90 Snoqualmie retail site
Dec 11 2012, 1:43 PM
Snoqualmie won’t be expanding its retail sector any time soon, even if it wins an upcoming legal appeal of a King County decision.
The city of 11,000 people has twice attempted to expand its urban growth area, or future annexation boundaries, to include 85 acres along Interstate 90 at the Highway 18 interchange.
That land, now zoned as rural, would have become a retail development serving the still-growing community, in Snoqualmie’s most recent proposal to modify its UGA through the King County Comprehensive Plan.
